New Study on Changing Faculty Roles

Posted by | 1 comment

This is a guest blog post by History Instructor and EAC Chair Sylvia Gray. 

Adapting by Design:  Creating Faculty Roles and Defining Faculty Work to Ensure an Intentional Future for Colleges and Universities  (scroll down for it; there is also an executive summary).

Have you read this study yet?  My heart was beating faster and I felt like cheering, in spite of the work this project will involve.

It is fresh off the press and dovetails nicely with PCC’s ACCEPT Task Force’s report (Addressing the Culture, Climate, and Experience of Part-Timers), broadening the scope, laying out the challenges, and calling for a deliberate, nation-wide discussion concerning the role of faculty. This study is key. It pulls together much research and provides a path forward, suggesting that intentional work on these issues can indeed be successful in improving the situation for all faculty and for all institutions of higher education.

Wow – I had no idea any of this was going on! Fantastic… and let me know how I might be able to become involved in this.

Add to the discussion

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
